SPOKANE, Wash.--The closing arguments in the John Lipinski murder trial began Thursday morning.

Detectives said Lipinski threw Melissa Saldivar from a moving car. She was killed and so was the couple's unborn child. Lipinski was found guilty in 2005.

Lipinski was sentenced to 31-years but was awarded a new trial on November 8, 2013 because his first trial jury selection was not open to the public.

The new trial began in the first week of February 2014.
